feedback about Charlotte Hungerford Hospital
I'll try to keep this short. I got in a car accident. Had 8/10 pain. Could barely walk. Told the nurse that acetaminophen didn't help at all. So what did they do? They wrote me a prescription for acetaminophen and sent me on my way. I had to beg for crutches because they didn't want me to have them. They messed up writing the prescription and CVS said they couldn't give me anything. I could barely sleep at night because of the pain. They weren't even busy that day. I was there for 4 hours to basically receive no care. It's clear that they didn't care and didn't listen to a word I told them.
The date of birth and social security number opens up a candidate to discrimination during the hiring process. The hospital asks for both during the job application process. Background checking at a later time can help with the process of establishing the need for a safe working environment. However, why date of birth? Are they filtering out older candidates?
Age discrimination? Someone needs to check out their hiring policies.
The intake staff in the Emergency room are very polite and caring. Cannot say the same for the nurses who are quick to dismiss your issues and injuries to send you home. Better off going to Hartford Hospital if you can help it.
I don't recommend this hospital to anyone with any type of medical issues, unless it's something simple as a paper cut. The employees that work in the intake are polite, but once you get passed that part of the process.. all goes down hill. The nurses are rude, and give you an attitude if you ask them anything beyond what they feel like doing. Mind you, I said FEEL like doing.. despite if it's something they're supposed to do. The doctor wasn't of much help, and was pretty unprofessional imo. I've been to Hartford Hospital, as well as Yale New Haven Hospital and while at either location had no complaints. On the other hand, this place really needs to clean out alot of their staff and train and hire new people. It's a shame when your Hospital has an average rating of 2.5...
Took my wife to the ER because she had severely painful bloating, vomiting and sulfur burps. They made her take a pregnancy test. She was in so much pain that she had a hard time talking, so I was explaining symptoms to the doctor. He basically ignored me. They took her for a CT scan. Doctor came back and was like "well you are definitely bloated..."
Yeah, That was why she was there in the first place. He told us to have our primary care doctor do a stool sample as he didn't want to order the test because results would come back when he wasn't there.
5 hours and no treatment really. Turned out my wife had Guardia, which is what I suspected from a simple Google search.
If the doctor had LISTENED TO ME when I explained her symptoms, he probably would have caught it.
She is fine now, but that is not the point. The "care" was atrocious.
